As a sidenote, NW25, a 744 from DTW to NRT also diverted to YEG for medical reasons last Thursday (April 16). Following from Transport Canada incident summary.

NWA 25 diverted to Edmonton International due to a medical emergency. Aircraft was routed through active military airspace following co-ordination. 130,000 lbs of fuel were dumped from the vicinity of La Ronge, Saskatchewan to 25 miles northwest of Edmonton. The flight landed uneventfully at 2243z.

I flew HKG-YYZ back in January and there was also a sick woman and we also diverted to YEG. How strange.

Oh I have a question, when planes divert and such do the airlines have to pay airport taxes?

Landing fees are charged, as are gate/handling charges. But security fees are not normally charged, as the passengers remain within the secure area for the stop.

Unfortunatly, Yes. But think of it this way... there is no price on life!

Same for Technical diversions, and for distruptive pax etc.

Also for the extra fuel which is required for the continue journey. The aircraft may have had to had dumped fuel before landing too if it was too heavy to land.
